UT Dallas Researchers Have Six Papers Accepted Into The ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)

UT Dallas Computer Science faculty members are world-renowned for their research and scholarship. The CS Department ranks within the top 50 on (2008-2020 period). This summer, researchers from the UT Dallas CS Department will have a strong presence at the 42nd ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2020) with six accepted research papers. For over forty years, the ICSE conference has been an internationally renowned forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present, discuss, and exchange the most recent innovations, trends, challenges, research results, and practical experiences in the field of software engineering. Six papers submitted by Drs. Lingming ZhangTien N. NguyenAndrian MarcusCong Liu, and their respective co-authors were accepted into the 42nd ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering.

The ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering is particularly selective in accepting research papers, and each paper submitted to the conference is rigorously peer-reviewed by multiple experts. ICSE has an average paper acceptance rate of 16.9% (last five years 20.7%).

The following is the list of the six papers authored by UT Dallas faculty members and their respective co-authors that were accepted by the 42nd ACM/IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering:
